OUR BUSINESS IS TO KNOW YOURS
A mission we strive to accomplish everyday
Understanding what your real business needs are the forms of the basis of our partnership with you. For only then can we deliver true customer satisfaction. At EURO, we live by this one mission statement that has guided us from very humble beginning to become a world-class corporation.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE TODAY
When every step is a step forward
Everything we do is about progress. Not just in terms of product quality, but progress in the senseof creating more conducive workspaces for all users.
In fact, we spare no expense when it comes to R&D. One of our core strengths is being able to explore design forms and direction in anticipation of future needs.
We constantly challenge the norm with innovative products that are ahead of their time. Designing and redesigning until we’re satisfied with creating products that don’t just look good, but work great.
Still, we realise that we certainly need to look beyond just the business of manufacturing quality office furniture.
THE NEXT STEP
Enter a future that is ours to share
If today is about mobility, flexibility and familiarity, the challenge then lies in what tomorrow’s demands will be. As we more forward to embrace all that come our way, we have to re-invent ourselves to do more than just provide great solutions to answer today’s needs. We have to meet the changing demands of changing times.
Today, the workplace need to provide more that just a work environment for its employees. It needs to create a warm, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere to encourage and inspire the bestfrom its people. It must have conducive areas if interaction where the exchange of quick, informative intelligence can take place. It should break down barriers in order to maximise, optimise and prioritise the processes of work in the least amount of time.
The need for imagination and innovation has certainly changed.
Seeing this shift in attitude, we at EURO are also progressively making every effort to stay ahead with these changing demands.
For a start, we’re investing more resources into researching each and every one of our customer’s nature of business. We believe it is vital for us to understand the dynamics of each workplace and anticipate the heeds of different departments and individuals.
Only then, we can strike the perfect balance of productivity and efficiency with the concepts that inspire a better quality of life at work. After all, why should someone wants to spend so many hours every day at a workplace that doesn’t inspire or induce a higher level of creative energy?
The future is bold and exciting. We are eager to welcome it together with you.
THE ESSENCE OF TRUE PARTNERSHIP
Sharing our beliefs
People work best together when there’s great teamwork that encourages a culture of excellence. At EURO, we call it partnership.
The partnership we have with each customer is built on the mutual understanding that we are here to help you grow your business. In essence, we work hard to learn about the strengths of your business and even its limitations. It’s about knowing what works for you and what doesn’t. This makes it easier for us to contribute to your request to achieve your company’s goal and aspirations.
We believe that in this constantly changing world, it helps to have a partner that you can count on.
A Testimony of Inspiration at Work
There is a story behind every success. Ours began in 1976.
A Testimony of Inspiration at Work
There is a story behind every success. Ours began in 1976, from a small business, manufacturing sofas and cushions with only 3 employees. Since then, it flourished into an international producer of office furniture with over 600 staff and an established sales network that spans over five continents.
The EURO brand was created in 1987. In the same year , the Group made its maiden foray into the international market by exporting office chairs to Saudi Arabia. This was followed by subsequent exports to Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, New Zealand and Australia.
Then, in 1997, EURO attained the ISO 9002 quality system certificate. With the completion of the second factory in Rawang, production capacity was boosted, and exports expanded further into Europe, South America, India and other countries.
EURO continued to strengthen its brand and market presence and its quality system was upgraded to ISO 9001:2000 Management System in 2003. It also successfully made a lasting impact in the domestic market on major projects which included reputable clients.
As a testament to the passion for its trade, EURO became a public listed company on the Unified Board (previously known as the Main and Second Board) of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad in 2005. EURO also won numerous awards including Best Brands Award 2004 under the best Malaysian Brand Category for the brand EURO, the “Brandlaureate” Award for “Best Brand in Office Furniture” from 2006 to 2012, Malaysia Furniture Leadership Award and Asian Furniture Leadership Award 2009 to 2012.
Today, through its technical competency and service orientation and backed by over 30 years of in-depth furniture manufacturing experience and know-how, EURO is a leading brand office furniture manufacturer in Malaysia, operating from three plants based in Rawang. Our business has grown into a manufacturing conglomerate that is represented in many countries around the world.
Philosophy, Vision, Mission
A Fresh Perspective
To help all our partners and employees stay focused on a common goal, we’d like to share with everyone a new philosophy which we believe will help us all realise our dreams and aspirations.
Be a business partner to our customers so that we can help to create workspaces that inspire people to produce their best.
Provide work space consultancy as a value added service in addition to produce the highest quality range of products and services.
Understanding that in our business, no service or care for our customer is of value if our product is not of top quality.
Believing that the close of every sale should open up to the next and this comes with providing great service with our product.
We are not mere sales people peddling products. We strive to understand our customer’s business thoroughly in order to provide them with solutions and not just products.
